Graduate Programs in Health and Human Performance

Suspensions from the Doctoral Program

If a student does not maintain satisfactory progress toward the degree as demonstrated by their grades or fails to complete written and research tasks as agreed with their dissertation advisor, the HHP Graduate Program Director is notified and then advises the Department Chair. Students failing to maintain satisfactory progress toward completion of degree requirements may be placed on academic probation and may be suspended from the program and from the university. Suspended students must apply for readmission and meet the admission requirements at the time of readmission. A minimum GPA of 3.25 is required for conferral of the Doctorate degree.
